This is a short novel but it packs a punch. The language is beautiful and the plot moving as Langston finds connections to his mother who passed just before they moved. It was a pleasure watching him find his way and meeting the other characters in his neighborhood. Of course, it doesn't hurt that the library and its friendly librarians play such a big role!
